Driver Charged in Deaths of Four

Brenham Banner-Press, August 22, 2011

A man charged with four counts of intoxication manslaughter is an illegal alien who only a few weeks ago was arrested on another alcohol-related charge, officials say.

Roberto Castillo, 19, remained in the Washington County jail this morning under $2 million bond after authorities say he slammed into another vehicle at the intersection of Highway 36 South and FM 109 about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Authorities said Castillo’s pickup truck struck a 1998 Mustang carrying four people, who all died from injuries they suffered in the crash. Their identities had not yet been released this morning.

According to reports, Castillo was arrested July 30 after an off-duty Washington County deputy reported he was driving erratically.

Castillo was subsequently arrested by a Brenham police officer and charged with driving under the influence by a minor, a Class C misdemeanor.

He was released after posting bail.

Chief Deputy Mike Herzog said it’s doubtful that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents were contacted about Castillo’s arrest and illegal alien status.

“At that time, ICE was only taking Class B and above (offenders),” Herzog said. “This was a Class C misdemeanor.”

Castillo was unhurt and briefly fled into a nearby mobile home park before being found and taken into custody.

    What state did this happen? It was just a few days ago that a young white man in Massachusetts was senselessly dragged to his death by a drunk illegal alien with a long criminal rap sheet. How many more whites need to be slaughtered by these invadors before our elites start to do something?! truely infuriating

    About a year ago, an illegal Mexican was drunk and speeding at over 100 mph down a boulevard here in Tuscaloosa,Alabama. He ran a red light and killed the college aged daughter of one of our neighbors.

    Nearly 5 or 6 years earlier, a woman professor from the University of Alabama was driving on Interstate 75 near Tampa, FL. An illegal Mexican teenager dropped a concrete block from an overpass and decapitated her.

    These are but two of the reasons Alabama now has one of the toughest immigration laws in the country. If trying to save the lives of our citizens in “racist”, then we are “racists.”

    The police can already confiscate vehicles of those caught with drugs or poaching. They should expand it to DWI and driving without a license.

    The illegals work for peanuts. Blame capatalism, not “our” governments immigration policies.

  • Preston Wiginton

    The 4 that died were Mexican also. Although they were US citizens.

    They can, but wait until you read this news:

    Note the reason they want to stop seizing drunk drivers’ cars — Disparate impact on Hispanics. Using that logic, they shouldn’t enforce murder laws, because they have a disparate impact on young black and Hispanic men.

    Almost 15 years ago Bob Clark, who directed the much-beloved classic film, “A Christmas Story,” was killed along with his son, Ariel, in a head-on collision with a drunk illegal alien. Of course, the Mexican lived.

    What does breaking the law have to do with “capitalism?” I “blame” our government’s refusal to enforce immigration law for yet another needless death of an American citizen!

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    More Americans die so democrats can have more votes.

    Lefties only care about votes, not tragedies that are easily avoided by enforcing our border. Four killed by an above-the-law illegal colonist in Texas as Texas state Governor Perry panders to LaRaza!!

    It took blow torches to remove the four bodies from the mangled wreckage — as the illegal, drunken mexican killer tried to run off.

    Both the illegal in this case and the Santa Rosa case where a four year old boy was mowed down in a crosswalk had been arrested before; obviously neither has ANY respect for American laws and were clearly a DANGER to the public.

    Why do we even have police if they no longer enforce the law?

    In today’s America, an illegal alien is a part of a protected class that is not required to obey the same laws we citizens must.

    Driven Magazine reports: The study was the first to analyze the fatal crash involvement of Mexican-Hispanic subgroups. This group had the highest rate of alcohol related traffic fatalities at 59.7 percent. Mexican-Americans followed with 52.5 percent.

    In Mexico, the culture is very much a drinking culture. After a hard day at work, it is normal to end the workday by drinking beer. At social events – celebrations, visiting friends – it is commonplace to drink, for the men. Drinking alcohol starts early for male Hispanics–as early as age 12…traffic laws are quite different and the use of seatbelt restraints is almost unheard of.

    Deport them back to Mexico where they can drink and drive to their heart’s content!

    As for the DUI roadblocks that SHOULD be placed around hispanic communities, the local LaRaza radio station broadcasts the location of the drunk driving/license/registration police checks. Local activists turn out en masse waving signs and turning around drivers before they reach the checkpoints in order to protect the “rights” drunken drivers and those without licenses or registration.

    “One Bill Gil” is the same racist LaRaza politician that is pushing the Dream Act II so illegal colonists have access to CITIZENS’ monies in the form of Cal Grants and other California loans only available (at the moment) to legal citizens. The idiot governor, Geriatric Brown has already stated that he plans to sign the bill.

    There are not enough Whites left here in California to stop this process.

    I have mentioned this over and over. The estates of the deceased need to sue in civil court a variety of agencies for helping to establish a climate that has led to these deaths. Lax enforcement of laws that allowed this illegal to drive even when he had no business doing so. A bunch of civil suits for big time will wake these governmental agencies up big time.

    “The illegals work for peanuts. Blame capatalism, not “our” governments immigration policies.”

    Well, sorry to argue with you but;

    First, we agree that “our” government’s immigration policy is racist, evil, genocidal, and dooming us to become a third world nation. -The Legal Immigration policy that is. Their policy on illegal immigration is downright criminal and traitorous (AZ for example, should refuse to procecute drug violations or assist the DEA from now on -as drugs are a Federal matter just like they claim immigration is…)

    As for the tired claim that capitalism is somehow to blame; it isn’t. Civic responsibility is a virtue; some capitalists have it and some do not -just as some communists believe that they have it- while most do not.

    Capitalism is generally fair; so long as the playing field is level. You have what I want; I have what you want. Let’s make a trade we both find fair. Failing that, you can take yours and go your way in search of a better deal, while I do likewise with mine.

    The problem (that you have been misinformed about -and told to blame on Capitalism, through no fault of your own) is that the playing field is Not level; not because of ‘greedy capitalists’ but because of the Government.

    Here’s the best example I can give; You want your house built, ok? You are an average working family; and because of inflation and fiat money -you need to make every dollar count. Naturally, in deciding to build your house, you ask for bids from local contractors. Because it is ALOT of money, you naturally take the lowest bid; or the highest you can afford, in hope for better quality construction, fixtures etc. Capitalism; honest and fair to both buyer and seller.

    But, it has been perverted by the Government at its most fundimental level; and is not capitalism, but cleverly concealed socialism.

    You see; the government is punishing some contractors -the legal ones- and rewarding the illegals. Ignoring their abuse of social services (again, the government) the simple fact that they (illegal aliens) are here, competing for jobs and Not Paying Taxes and Soc Sec allows them to under bid Any legitimate contractor’s bottom line price by 30%. 30% of the labor on a house is ALOT of cash.

    So, you cannot blame the capitalist (you in this example) for taking the lowest bid, they’re only being smart; you cannot blame the legitimate contractors and say that their bids were all to high because they are greedy; we have to eat, buy gas, pay insurance, and comp and taxes too, friend, so we know how important it was to you to save money on your house, we also dream of owning our own for half a career or more. You can only blame the government for tipping the scales in the favor of the Alien, by simply not enforcing the existing laws.

    “Aha!” You say; “I was talking about the Big guys; you know -Tyson Chicken, or GE; the ones buying the Government and having their pet politicians do their bidding, so they can get cheap labor.”

    Well, the big guys usually go the H1B or ‘student’ visa route, but again; that can be laid directly on the Government -they chose to prostitute themselves and to warp the laws businesses operate under. Change Campaign laws; give every politician the same ammount of free airtime on CSPAN and ban political advertisement on all commercial telecommunication; then they do not need all these thinly disguised bribes called campaign ‘contributions’, because the wedding of government and corporate interests is most definately Not capitalism, Hitler called it Corporatism, but there are other, more apt names. Wal-Mart is not Capitalism; it is a perversion masked under so-called free trade. (Free trade implys a level playing field -so we should not import from any country that does not meet EPA standards and every other regulation our own business operate under. Bet we’d get some jobs back.)

    Most of all; what can be laid directly at the feet of the Government is the decision to Not Enforce immigration laws already existing -which are awful, but one thing at a time.

    That is not Capitalism in action; that is block voting politics at work. That is political promise making for minority votes, like the Promised ‘one time amnesty’ in the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Immigration Act, which was supposed to fix the ‘deeply flawed’ 1965 Immigration and Naturilization Act(?) I remember reading and hearing the same lies then as now, almost word for word, except the problem is much worse now. All because of the government, and its socialist perversion of the noble Capitalism that birthed Baldwin Locomotive, Henry Ford, Willy’s Overland, the Wright Brothers, the middle class… In fact, Capitalism (true, clear quill Capitalism) was the golden goose that birthed the entire marvelous Western World around you, and was quietly murdered in smoke filled backrooms by those who feel entitled to something for nothing; and have the power to make regulation.

    What is funny is that the illegal aliens in this country; by sending money back ‘home’ are causing inflation in their own countries; which actually Increases poverty overall and causes more and more people to flock into the ‘easy money’ of the drug cartels -fueling their power and hastening the decent of those countries into narco-republics. Just food for thought.

    Sorry to make such a long winded post, I really didn’t mean to Biden on so much.

    Here in Washington State illegal aliens can get a driver’s licence, legally. But they still drive without a licence and without insurance–brand-new cars, too. I don’t know how they do it. When I buy a brand-new car I have to show my license and have PROVEN insurance coverage before I can drive off the lot. When they hit someone they all pile out of the car screaming and wailing in their incomprehensible Spanglish, and the driver takes off running. By the time the police and an interpreter get there the driver is long gone and the innocent (usually white) motorist gets hit again–this time in the wallet.

  • Roadgeek

    Addressing the first commenter: this happened in Brenham, Texas. Brenham is about 75 miles northwest of Texas and 90 miles east of Austin.

    I emailed the newspaper asking them to look into who had employed young Castillo; I’ve heard nothing but crickets in return.

  • Southern Hoosier

    Just finished watching a DUI public service announcement on TV here in Greenville, SC. The drunk driver was white. The girl with him was blond. The victim was Black. And the cop was Black. I kept waiting for the neighborhood flash mob to show up and beat the driver to death, but they didn’t. So much for the real world.

    I wonder if Obama will deport him or just wait till he becomes a “real” criminal?

    Capitalism has nothing to do with it. First of all it was Karl Marx who coined the derogative term capitalism for free market enterprise. Free Market Enterprise is no more at fault for greedy despots than the Catholic faith is for an infestation of pedophiles. It’s not the medium itself, it’s the people that control them. I believe the version of “capitalism” you despise is monopolistic capitalism, practiced by all the big wigs that the American populace worship such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, et al. So, how much should we also blame the consumer or stockholder for not demanding better behavior of the companies and people they fund?

  • AmericaFirst

    Someone with more specific knowledge please correct me, but did this take place in Washington state? And doesn’t Washington State have a very lax attitude toward illegal aliens, especially receiving driving licenses? (As insane as that appears.) And doesn’t Washington state have a higher proportion of illegal alien drunk driving accidents than any other similar jurisdiction in the U.S.? And isn’t driving – whether licensed or not, insured or not – while drunk acceptable, even encouraged, in Mexican (and other Central American) culture? Yeah, we all know the counter-arguments: all kinds of people drive drunk, without licenses, and without insurance, so to single out illegals, especially Mexicans, is RACIST. Never mind that most of us also know it is wrong, criminal, immoral, etc., etc., while apparently these illegals do not, or don’t care. Another hideous example of the illegal Mexicans disdain for our nation, our culture and our people.

  • Up to my neck in CA.

    This happens all the time up here in California’s wine country, as Bon # 9 noted just recently in Santa Rosa CA. The Mexicans love beer and drink it everyday in excess. They load cars up with 6 to 8 people with no seatbelts, that should only have 4 people in them. When there is a DUI checkpoint they stand down the road from it with signs warning of it in SPANISH! My wife and I have been both been in accidents with “undocumented citizens”, both times it was their fault. No license, no registration, no insurance, no habla. They have grown arrogant by the constant coddling by the liberal Democrats that run this state. They DO NOT have to assimilate to American customs or learn English, because they are catered to by Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein and now Governor Moonbeam, they only care about votes at any cost. Our schools are over-run, our hospitals are over-crowded and broke. Their gangs are in a statewide turf war with the black gangs. The hoards from the South are a blight on this great nation. We need stronger border control, God only knows what slips past the miles of unchecked borders.

    People, the way we fight this is simple: Go after the employers who hire illegals by using IRS Form 211. If the total hit to the employer’s pocektbook (including tax, penalties, interest, additions to tax, and additional amounts)exceeds $2,000,000, you get a cut of the take.

    Incidentally, “211” is the California Penal Code section dealing with robbery, which I find ironic.

  • fuzzypook

    Less than a year ago, here in Lexington Ky, a nurse was killed by a drunk illegal. About 5 years ago a local artist was hit by another drunken invader. In both cases the Mexicans were allowed to post a small bail and has, of course, disappeared.

    I’m afraid I must disagree with you here. Capitalism is not a derogatory word any more than the psychological terms Freud coined were derogatory. At points in history, terms must be invented as descriptive and in capitalism’s case, a shorter, handier term that simply describes the role of money’s use in a free economy. Before the Federal Reserve existed, Monopolists like Carnegie, JP Morgan, and others actually lent money to the government so it could function when it encountered its first dangerous deficit. As a result, it basically owned the government and according the 20th century historian Carrol Quigley, bought elections. Teddy Roosevelt passed the Sherman Anti-Trust Act in the late 19th century, when the monolithic monopolies first formed. No corporation today matches those for such monopolistic practices. You don’t have to buy Microsoft products or any of the products from the companies you list. There are alternatives. As with Catholicism, those in control were corrupt manipulators from the start. Read up on real history and that is plain. AND the recent spate of pedophiles and other sexual deviants in the church is not new, it is as old as the church. When you set up a system of sex denial, you actually stimulate it in the ranks from those who need to hide the most. Both homosexuality and sexual promiscuity was rampant in the medieval church. I recall a story on how the Catholic seminaries of the 1980s were full of homosexuals and the hope of advancing in the Church ANYWHERE depended on your homosexual orientation. The development of the nun’s habit as billowy was for concealing the results of carnal sin, and more than one church in Europe was found with its hollow walls filled with the bones of newborns tossed in for the mother’s and father’s professional protection. How did the medieval church protect itself? Well, by throwing the spotlight from itself by accusing Jews of fallacious crimes; committing false witness to condemn and burn witches, etc. And just when Christianity was about to whimper out and die in Europe, along came Martin Luther, and gave it fresh legs.

    You seem to have a basic misunderstanding of the meaning of monopoly and capitalism, as well as a poor education in history.

    Last week a white guy in Mass was dragged to his death by a drunk illegal – the NCAAP originally thought it was a black guy dragged to his death by a drunk white guy – they were ready to get REALLY upset and make an issue over it, but it turned out just to be a dumb white guy – no big deal.

    Lets face it – this illegal was probably drunk because he was upset that he couldn’t get in state college tuition, that’s the only rational explanation.

    WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita police say the man who killed a six-year-old girl and shot her mom, sister and grandmother before turning the gun on himself had been deported from the country twice. Police originally said the man’s name was Valentin Vega-Soto, a 36-year-old Mexican national. However, after running a finger check, they realized that was his alias. His legal name is Joel Humberto Corrales Vega. They say after investigating further, they found he had been deported from the U.S. twice in the past and has a criminal history outside of Kansas.

    I remember sitting in Spanish class in high school and hearing my teacher tell us that in Mexico, you’d better watch it when crossing the street–it seems that drivers aim for pedestrians.

    Sounds like they’re bringing that little game over here.
